Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
I think it would have done much better had people actually given a fuck about Punk's title reign for even a quarter of those 365 days. But hey, this is what happens when you treat something like shit and then expect people to care. They don't. Hell, they're treating Cena being in WWE for 10 years as a bigger deal than Punk being champ for 1.
This clarifies a lot of things for me and should for others too. Punk's segment wasn't even the highest of the night and it was promoted heavily throughout the show not to mention got the overrun slot which should have helped big time. It was his big moment to shine and nobody cared. Says it all really. And before some idiot starts flaming, I'm not solely blaming him for the entire show performance. But this segment was all Punk in what was supposed to be the biggest segment of the night and the obvious hook of the show and it couldn't even beat the opener.
Also, the Cena/AJ/Vickie thing doing so badly is another wake up call. I think that has to be one of the worst 9PM growths in some time. Why? Because they've been doing the exact same segment at the exact same time slot for the past month. Any bit of wonder why people aren't watching it. Besides, it's retarded as fuck which doesn't help matters either.
Horrible breakdown. Not one segment got over a 3.0 which is just awful. What else is there to say other than the fact that they're stuck in a rut and won't get out of it until they get their act together across the board. Punk isn't doing anything to help when it comes to television audiences. I've been saying this for months. Now it appears that even John Cena isn't enough anymore. They're all striking out.
